How Could Earthing Help YOU?
One of the biggest benefits Earthing has shown to help with is reducing inflammation in the body - it does this by providing the body with a large source of antioxidants which in turn minimises free radical damage to cells and tissues, allowing the body to heal and repair. This is huge because if you can knock down the fire of inflammation on a daily basis, you will prevent your tissues and cells becoming damaged and diseased and therefore ward off potential chronic illnesses. With less inflammation in the body you may experience less aches and pains, sleep better, feel calmer and less stressed, have a stronger immune system, ward off potentially life threatening diseases and it will contribute to your overall general well-being and longevity.
When you make Earthing a daily practise you put out the 'small spot fires' of inflammation every day and don't allow it to become a ragging 'bush fire' so to speak, and this in turn will allow your body to repair and function as it is meant to in an ideal natural situation. With our indoor Earthing products you can now do this everyday simply and effortlessly!
The electrons from Earthing could be considered as nature's biggest Antioxidant and Anti-Inflammatory. Most of us know that we can get antioxidants through fresh fruit, veggies, superfoods and supplements, however, in today's world we would have to be eating them by the bucketful to counteract the huge amount of free radicals our body is bombaded with everday from chemicals, pollution, mobile phones, fast foods, toxic water, etc. Concentrated antioxidants help to provide protection from cellular damage that can accelerate the aging process and bring on diseases, so you need to get as many as you can in today's modern world.
What Are Free Radicals?
Free Radicals (+ postive charge) are Scavengers - they are a molecule constantly searching for a free electron (- negative charge). They do not care where they get the electron from and will pull them out of healthy cells causing damage and inflammation. When they are constantly fed with electrons they are happy (balanced) and leave our healthy cells alone and natural healing can occur.
Pain! Why you need to knock down chronic inflammation...
If you have chronic pain in the body you have an active immune response going on at an auto immune level that's damaging healthy tissues - the immune system is chronically producing free radicals eating up the good cells, causing a deficiency. Earthing the body has been shown to dramatically help with pain by replenishing that deficiency.
When you are Earthed or grounded (a negative charge) and the pain stops or reduces, this means that Earthing has neutralized the excess free radicals (positive charge) which is helping to prevent damage to normal, healthy tissue and that in turn shuts down the immune response and returns the body to normal. A natural electrical state is restored and healing can take place.
For many people the effect of Earthing is dramatic and fast, like charging a failing battery. For others, the effect is gradual and subtle and may take several weeks.Clint Ober Founder of Earthing
Earthing, while may seem too simple for some, may actually hold the key to a fully holistic approach to health and well-being and may be the missing link that has stopped you achieving the results you have been searching for with your wellness. Just as you strive to eat nutritious foods from the earth, drink clean water, exercise, supplement with superfoods, vitamins and minerals you also need to incorporate a daily dose of Earthing to complete the puzzle of vitality and wellbeing. The more you can Earth or ground your body in a 24 hours period the better as our immune system works 24 hours a day and doesn’t take a break and constantly needs replenishing.
Common Inflammatory Diseases Today
|ALLERGIES||Inflammation messengers stimulate the release of histamine, leading to allergic reactions.|
|ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE||Inflamed brain tissues develop plaque; chronic inflammation kills brain cells.|
|AMYOTROPHIC LATERAL SCLEROSIS (ALS)*||Damage to motor neurons causes the body to launch an overzealous inflammatory counterattack, killing the motor neurons.|
|ANEMIA||Inflammatory messengers attack red blood cell production.|
|ARTHRITIS||Chronic inflammation destroys joint cartilage and inhibits the release of lubrication and cushioning fluid in the joints.|
|ASTHMA||Inflammation leads to blocking of the bronchial passages.|
|AUTISM||Brain inflammation is present in most autistic children.|
|CANCER||Inflammation contributes to free radicals, tumour growth and inhibits the bodys defence against abnormal cells|
|CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE||Inflammation causes thick, unhealthy blood and arterial disease, leading to blockage and plaque and increased risk of dangerous clots in the blood vessels that feed the heart and brain; inflammation also damages heart valves.|
|DIABETES, TYPE 1 & 2||Type 1 diabetes, inflammation induces the immune system to destroy pancreatic beta cells; type 2 diabetes, fat cells cause the release of inflammatory messengers, leading to insulin resistance.|
|FIBROMYALGIA||Inflammatory compounds present in the body at an elevated level.|
|COMMON INTESTINAL DISORDERS||Crohns disease, irritable bowel, diverticulitis, and other intestinal problems involve inflammation that causes pain, interference with digestion and assimilation of nutrients, and damage to the sensitive lining of the digestive tract.|
|KIDNEY FAILURE||Inflammation restricts circulation and damages kidney cells that filter blood.|
|LUPUS||Inflammatory compounds spark an autoimmune attack.|
|MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS||Inflammatory compounds attack the nervous system.|
|PAIN||Activation of pain receptors, transmission and modulation of pain signals, and hypersensitivity of the nervous system are all one continuum of inflammation and the inflammatory response.|
|PANCREATITIS||Inflammation induces pancreatic cell injury.|
|PSORIASIS AND ECZEMA||Inflammation-based skin disorders.|
|SURGICAL PROBLEMS||Excess inflammation can prolong healing.|
|*ALS is often called Lou Gehrigs disease||***Extract from the Earthing Book 2nd Edition|
